Motor Action, ASEC to play only one leg match: CAF

[Posted 18 Mar 2011]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Motor Action to play ASEC Mimosas in Harare tomorrow in a next round deciding match

The Confederation of African Football announced on Thursday that African clubs who are set to play clubs from either the war-ravaged or war-threatened countries such as Libya and Ivory Coast in the Champions League this weekend, will now only play single leg matches, as opposed to two legs, in line with CAF regulations.

CAF's decision means that clubs such as Motor Action Football Club, who are set to play ASEC Mimosas of Ivory Coast at Rufaro Stadium in Harare tomorrow, and a 2nd leg two weeks later in Abdijan, will now only play one leg in Harare.

"Following the political situation in Cote d’Ivoire and in line with Article 5 para 15 of the regulations, we hereby confirm that only one decisive match will be played in Zimbabwe for the Motor Action – Asec Mimosas encounter on 18, 19 or 20 March 2011", read part of the CAF statement on Thursday.

The continental soccer governing mother body has likewise decided that the other two set of matches involving clubs from Libya and Ivory Coast ( Cote d'Ivoire) will be changed into one leg matches.

"For the J.C.A Treichville vs. Ittihad game, in view of the actual situation in Cote d’Ivoire and Libya and in conformity with Article 12 of the regulations, the match will take place on a neutral ground on 1, 2 or 3 April 2011. The Libya Football Federation and the Ivorian Football Federation are requested to reach a mutual agreement on the neutral ground by March 21 at midday at the latest on the proposed country. CAF reserves all rights to decide the venue of the match after receiving the proposals.

"Also, in line with Article 5 para 15 of the regulations, only one decisive match will be played in Burkina Faso for the USFA – Africa Sport game on 1, 2, or 3 April 2011," continued the CAF statement.

CAF's decision means that Motor Action of Zimbabwe, USFA of Burkina Faso will enjoy home ground advantage.

By implication, if the two teams play out to draws, the away goals' rule will not apply, and the match will be decided by penalty shoot-outs.
